ABOUT TWO TEMPLE PLACE
Two Temple Place is an architectural masterpiece hidden in the heart of central London. The late Victorian neo-Gothic mansion was commissioned in 1892 by financier and statesman William Waldorf Astor, once known as the richest man in the world, who spared no expense commissioning John Loughborough Pearson, founder of Modern Gothic architecture, to create the lavish building to serve as his estate office and private apartment. Pearson brought together eminent master craftsmen of the time, including William Silver Frith, Thomas Nicholls and J. Starkie Gardner, to create an extraordinary and personal commission devoted to William Waldorf’s love of history, art and literature. Situated on Embankment behind The Strand, Two Temple Place is owned and run by The Bulldog Trust, which was founded in 1983 to act as a catalyst for charitable initiatives.
